Unfortunately, and while perhaps a smidgen exaggerated, situations like this are still incredibly common. The norm, even – I have several friends and loved ones who experience versions of this very same thing. Some companies are not only ignorant about the use of social media – they’re scared of it. To the point of hostility.
How relaxed is your company about the use of (work-specific) social media during work time? Are they proactive and enthusiastic, or regressive and terrified?
And if it’s the latter… what are you going to do about it?
